Speaking of Newt: "the world that works, the world that fails"
Posted by: McQ on Saturday, August 04, 2007

Jon talked about Newt Gingrich and his possible designs on a presidential run. I agree with those who see Gingrich more as an idea man (a wonk) than a practical (or particularly attractive) political candidate. He's someone who can and does have good ideas about reforming government which I find both interesting and exciting, especially when he talks about downsizing and limiting it.

The video that follows gives you some practical examples from Gingrich of "the world that works and the world that fails". He's throwing out examples to make you think outside the "government is the solution" box. And there's even a touch of humor as well. When he talked about the ability of the private side to do things the public sides seems incapable of doing, the words "health care" came unbidden to my mind. Go figure.

Anyway, watch the video and ponder his points.

I think that the Contract with America from 1994 was brilliant. I also think it was mostly libertarian in nature and when I see libertarianism like that then I’m drawn to it. I was optimistic then.

Despite his brilliance and having most of the solutions for our problems, Newt should never run for President. He looks vaguely reptilian, and could we survive with a President named Newt? He should be the advisor behind the scenes formulating policy.

Is there any way we can put Newt, Nunn, and Zell into a blender and make an uber politician?
